Myself and the whole leadership team across Co-op want to say a massive thank you for all your work helping us to deliver a stronger Co-op and build stronger communities this year.
The team have shared their individual thanks in this short film – along with their plugs for their favourite Co-op food this Christmas.
Note: you can also find this video by searching for ‘Co-op colleagues’ on YouTube. If you can’t watch it, then you can read the transcript.
I also want to say a thank you in advance for all colleagues who are working over the festive period and putting in the extra efforts that this time of year demands from us.
Whether that’s Logistics colleagues pulling out all the stops to keep our stores filled, Funeralcare colleagues being on call to help people at their time of need, call centre colleagues providing support, and of course those in stores continuing to help customers during some of the busiest days of the year.
We’ve had a great year and made some real progress with our ambition. I know some of the changes we’ve made in different areas have been tough for some colleagues, and I want to thank those who’ve continued to show their professionalism throughout the changes.
Next year promises to be another big one for our Co-op.
But for now, I want to wish you all the best for the festive period, and I hope you make the most of the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends – and of course with some great Co-op food and drink.
